    do we think he can be a trevor ariza type player back in the day? 15pts 1.8 3 and like 1.6 steals?

    FYI Ariza in the remainder of this season could produce that with his new role in Portland.

    Reddish indeed looks to have turned the corner but his 3's may not be as consistent as Ariza.

    He is an all-around performer for sure. I'm considering dropping D Hunter but these two seem so similar.

    I have to opinionate when you blurt out total nonsense my guy. Good luck getting top 40 value with Drummond manning the C. 😂😂😂

    Larry and Drummond sound like they can produce together as displayed in the last game. The only factor is how soon will Love be shut down? Achilles is a serious business.

    4 stocks are frustrating?

    It is frustrating understandably. PJ and Wagner are similar in their current value while PJ gets more minutes. (5-10 min)

    PJ's consistency is also worse than Wagner given the games so far this year. Actually, he is barely roster-worthy in 12-team leagues -- Bad fg% ft% TO scoring

    It's when he fills the stat sheet with 3 3's 3 steals and 2 blocks, that gets owners hooked up.

    The only base to hope for is the more minutes after the break but he still has Bridges as a big barrier for max production.

    It's not so crazy to drop this dude for players on waiver. He is only an okay stash.

    maaaannn it was a sweet ride, but it looks like the wheels are starting to fall off for him again. I did get Reggie but I wonder if he'll be as efficient.

    Applaud for the dramatic turnaround and showing that he is still a great player. 

    Prime example of a player who needs a delicate load management.

    A lot of people saying they don't see much fantasy relevance or that the trading has been lackluster...

    While the trading might not be HUGE names, I see tons of possible fantasy relevance from these moves.

    - Damion Lee & Paschall (with GRIII and Burkes both leaving)

    - De'Andre Hunter (i believe with Capela now coming in, they've finally got a lock on their starting 5, and they'll be fun to watch. TY, Huerter, Hunter, Collins, Capela.

    - De'Anthony Melton (Crowder is now gone, feels like he'll be a lock for 27-30 MPG)

    - Josh Okogie (now feels like he'll be locked into a 30+ MPG role since RoCo and Wiggins are both gone.)

     

    While none of those are league-winners, definitely some "end of the bench" solid values to be had if those guys are on your waivers.

    Great summary, thanks.

    I disagree with Melton’s outlook. They seem more crowded for his role/position.

    He's been hot lately and I wouldn't blame you on riding him out, but it's hard to believe he'll continue this ROS with such a huge sample size of what he's done the whole season.

    Note that Graham is currently going through a huge slump - he's normally the number 1 option on the team and somehow Miles (who's traditionally been the 4th option behind Graham, Rozier, and PJ), has taken the most shots out of everyone lately. I'd expect that to normalize soon enough, when PJ comes back fully and Graham breaks out of his slump.

    Watching the game, Miles has been eating when PJ's off the court but when they're both together he's been relatively ineffective. 

    Ride him out, but if better options come along don't hesitate to make the drop.

    Agreed. His recent surge has a lot to do with injury, slump, and match-up. When everyone is healthy, ironically there are too many mouths to feed for the youth movement.

    They are mostly scoring types in Graham, Rozier, PJ, Monk, and Bridges. They need to exchange for players that excel at other categories.


  7. Isaiah Thomas once talked about how he had his last injury before retirement, relating to his mentality. When he started to take his mind off, injury happened. Irving doesn’t seem so in tune about leaving legacy in his career. Just frustrating to see him injured so damn often.

    We’ve been through this before..

    No PJ tonight as well so he moves up to third option from fourth option on offense.

    Yes I agree, we've been through this many times. He is that inconsistent.

    People bring up last year when he improved after asb for hope but this year shows no reason to believe he will do the same. My biggest concern is his chemistry with Washington. They rarely thrive together... in stats at least.

    At the age of only 22. Kobe Bryant was the number one ranked (8 cat) fantasy basketball player. 28.5 pts, 5.9 rebs, 5 ast, 1.68 stl, FG 46%, 85 FTs (8.2 per) according to basketball monster.

    Long live the legend.

    Learning cool facts like that is so cool. It's also a great tribute for Kobe. What was his TOs and 3s at the time? Hard to imagine that ranks for #1 in today’s league. Any other memories of Kobe in fantasy?

    im not sure anymore. Drummond has stated he wants to stay in Detroit but obv with his contract Detroit might wanna move him instead of lose him for nothing. but it seems all teams that would be interested don't want to trade for a rental either as I imagine Detroit would be asking a lot. the bright side for wood was he played in the fourth today with Drummond 

    With Drummond’s statement in mind, it might not be a bad idea to believe Drummond will stay. Pistons management should use the energy instead to add pieces around him better than how they had done previously.

    Folks in this forum believe that Wood is a reliable big man who would be able to fill in for Drummond’s spot due to his upside in numbers. In real life, he is just not even close to Drummond. Let's not confuse numbers to represent a player's true impact in game. 

    Drummond shouldn't be the first option on offense. Pair him with a first option guard or forward. Then, Detroit would be a decent team for sure.
